I've been following them on Facebook for a while now and they look really useful. They come with a squeezy top so you can get the goods out without having to actually open the lid each and every time.
They're all cylinders and while most seem to range from 2x4" to 2.75x12", you can also get non-squeezy lids and custom order longer tubes. And, if you can't tell from the photos here, they come in scads of colors!
They're great for storing pretty much anything you can think of. I imagine I'd have to duke it out with my hubby since he'd want to use them to store screws, bolts, nails and every other little tool bit floating around our garage.. And I KNOW my 6yr old would want some. He LOVES containers. I can only imagine the things he'd want to do with them- pretend mailboxes, dropping in counting items and magnetic letters, etc. I'd like to see him use them to keep his craft supplies and toys in- buttons, pom poms, foam pieces, little Legos, dinosaurs and and and. Personally, I'd like them for MY craft room- eyelets, brads, buttons, small flowers, Scrabble tiles and dominos, colored pencils whose box was destroyed... yeah, and, and and. Oh yeah. And my candy stash. LOL!
I've also seen some used as travel containers (travel sized lotions and such!), pet snack storage, and emergency medical kits- great for Bandaids!
Of course, don't forget you can decorate the Viewtainers too. There's this blinged out one posted on Viewtainer's site by Dawn. Fun!
So. Have you seen these? Tried them? You can now get them at Scrapbook.com and Amazon.com. Some Home Depots and Sears also stock them though you'll need to check. Unfortunately, neither of those stores in my area has them at this time.
Would you LIKE to try them? Viewtainer has offered to send one of my readers a 3-pack of Viewtainers! Yay! Because of shipping costs, this giveaway is limited to the US. To enter, please leave me a comment telling me how you've either used Viewtainers or how you'd like to... or both! :) The giveaway will close at midnight EST, Thur. Oct. 24 and I'll announce a winner soon thereafter. Promise! I hate entering giveaways and having to check back for weeks to see if I won- I definitely won't do that to you!
I'd also suggest you like Viewtainer on Facebook- it's not uncommon to find a giveaway happening over there!
